Hope!

Still a day out of sync, but on Wednesday we travelled back to South Ronaldsay again, This time all the way down to the skerries where on our previous holiday we had discovered a wonderful, if remote restaurant. The restaurant is now a destination in itself, in new premises, and did not have the charm and quality we had hoped to enjoy again. But the food was wonderfully local, the seafood salad very enjoyable, and the hand dived scallops fresh.

My next model build?

having finished lunch we took a slow tour back along the coast to St Margaret’s Hope, where we saw the Search and rescue helicopter flying over. What we didn’t know at that time was that it was actually searching for the diver who had hand dived our lunch. The story does not end there either, but you will have to wait for the next episode…

Shouldn’t that be in the water?

St Margaret’s is quant but looking tired these days, more so than we remember, but the boats are still there, dotted between the houses. After Tuesday’s discovery we headed off to find another hidden cairn, but it was too hidden for us to find, so we headed off the the causeway linked island of Deerness instead

Gloop

Where we discovered a gloup, apparently this is the Scottish word for a sea jet, essentially a sea cave in which the roof has collapsed. pretty, and dramatic, far more so than you would ever get from this picture
